What a great idea! I think it turned out quite well. I like that you can still see the color of the daisies...it really seems they are exploding! I hope that you will experiment some more with this sparkler idea. #1738932

Robyn Gwilt level-classic 8/22/2005 12:15:47 AM

Thanks 4 all the lovely comments. This is when I wish I had digital, as it takes so long so see the end result! Getting there though! In the meantime, this was another attempt (amongst about 50 others :) #1749059

Amanda Price level-classic 9/26/2005 8:47:36 PM

What category did you enter this in? It seems like you could put it into flowers or special effects. Try entering it again. It's an outstanding shot. So creative! #1888575

Robyn Gwilt level-classic 9/26/2005 11:06:26 PM

Thanks Amanda - I think I will re-enter it - maybe special effects - watch this space :)

Robyn Gwilt level-classic 10/27/2006 10:48:03 PM

Thanks Cheryl - 1st and only last year sometime - I don't seem to be able to repeat it :) #3512391

anonymous A. level-classic 10/27/2006 11:10:28 PM

And you're asking for advice on exposure??!!

Great creation: I last saw a "light painting" like this years ago, a building after dusk photographed with the camera on bulb and the subject lit by someone walking around (and iside) it seting off a flashgun at strategic points. As you can see, it impressed me enough to remember for a long time...but this is much better: the concept, composition and execution are all terrific! #3512429

Robyn Gwilt level-classic 10/28/2006 4:07:18 AM

LOL David :) This was actually shot on film, when I really didn't know a lot!! It was part of a course we were doing, and I only saw the result once the film was developed. I need to try to do it again on digital, then I'll know I got it right!! Thanks for the kind words though!! #3512854

RC Fritz level-classic 11/14/2006 9:20:14 AM

This is an awesome picture! So different and creative. One of these days when I retire, hopefully I will have time to try a lot of the ideas I am finding on BP! #3679659

Robyn Gwilt level-classic 12/7/2006 10:47:54 PM

Retire??!!! By the time that happens, I'll be too old and shaky to hold my camera, and will really have to rely on autofocus!! Thanks for your comment Debbie - keep experimenting :) #3679661

Robert E. Engelbart level-classic 12/15/2006 6:07:32 AM
